My Rating and General Opinion


Nothing but a good sequel full with new characters and packed with more action!
Maybe not the most original storyline, because some things seamed repeated from other series, but still this one held my attention.

The Writing

The writing continued to be the same, not magical but still flowing.

The Story

Everything strayed in the wrong way, in the wrong time (I wasn’t in the mood)… and at the beginning I thought it was gonna be more of the same, more 17th moon, claiming…. But the heart of the the story was in the development of the characters. I found this installment had more action, adventure… and some suprises that I wasn’t expecting at all!!

The Characters

The character developments, at least for me, were natural and nothing seemed forced, except maybe a couple I liked at the beginning but found it forced at a moment in Savannah… (sorry for the strange frasing I just don’t wanna spoil anything)


I would recommend it.
